Yesterday was one of the best days we've seen all month. We hit 61. It was a bit weird though, as I've become more accustomed to 30s for highs and lower teens for lows. More 30s for highs and teens for lows coming up though. The temps have not been the headlines though. The potential snowstorm here in the Carolinas on Christmas Day/Night has been watched closely by all. In the end, it looks like we won't see a big storm. Most areas will see 1-2" (maybe). .2" is all we need though to be counted as the third snowiest Christmas on record. Would be cool to see some snow. We'll see what happens. As Panther's head coach John Fox frequently says, "it is what it is." The mountains will likely see some hefty totals though, as upslope snows crank up. That should make for some fun fishing. Take it easy if you decide to fish around the NC/TN border. Conditions will deteriorate quickly once the snow starts to fall. The cold temps will definitely make fishing tough, but you should be able to find some fish. Nymphs are outfishing dries and will likely do so until we see a more prolonged warm spell (which could be next month). January might yield some decent BWO hatches, as the month looks to be warmer (or at least not as cold as this month). Until then, Pheasant Tail Nymphs, Prince Nymphs, Hares Ear Nymphs, and most other generic nymphs should catch fish. Make sure you get that fly on the bottom, as the fish will be down deep. They won't move very much in order to grab your fly. Lighter tippet is best, given how clear the streams are right now.

I may not post here on the main blog until the new year. I should update every now and then over at my tying blog, as I'm hoping to get some much needed tying done.

Hope everyone has a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
